Because I Can | Mom Monday

Ugh. Running, amirite? It’s a necessary evil in my house. It’s the worst- but also the best- thing I do. When momma ain’t running, no one’s happy. Yet another reason why summers are so hard around here. So getting up early and running on a Saturday is important to my family. But it has a […]
